    One could be forgiven amid the protests and continuing coronavirus crisis for forgetting that in Washington, DC, this week, Congress is looking into serious allegations that Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was spying on the Trump campaign. In normal times, it would be the biggest news story in America, and Wednesday’s shocking admissions by former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein would be an absolute bombshell.

    The key moment came in questioning from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who asked, “If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the warrant application?,” referring to a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant renewal concerning Trump campaign aide Carter Page.

    “No,” testified Rosenstein, “I would not.”

    And just like that, it became clear that the national torture of three years of the Russian collusion investigation simply should not have occurred. The problems were myriad. In Rosenstein’s words, the FBI “was not following the written protocols, and that significant errors appeared in applications.” What has emerged from the recent inspector general’s report and this testimony is that the Obama administration’s efforts to investigate and prosecute Trump administration officials wasn’t based on facts, but negligence or malice.

    Rosenstein also admitted that he rubber stamped the FISA warrants. He did not read every page, he did not inquire, even though it was aimed at a political campaign. This guy was either woefully incompetent, woefully negligent, or was actually involved. In any case, there is no good excuse for his bad actions that contributed to the successes of the conspiracy.

    Rosenstein basically perjured himself by signing documents that he said he knew to be true when they weren't. He should also be indicted for his part in the scheme to get President Trump.

    It seems to me that Senator Graham was protecting Rosenstein by those types of questions. The question should have been: "Mr. Rosenstein, why did you sign the warrant when you didn't know what was in them as you now claim? Didn't you violate the law by doing that and shouldn't you now be held legally accountable for your malfeasance?"

    Of course Mr. Graham should have also played that recording of Rosenstein talking about the signing of FISA warrants and that one MUST KNOW what is in them before signing off on them.
